Appearance: pours a clear orange color with a 2" head that sports some large bubbles and lasts a while.

Smell: bits of oak, whiskey, and caramel are easy to detect.

Taste: grainy malt base, caramel, fruit sweetness, oak, and a touch of alcohol make up a tasty brew. Bitterness is moderate enough to balance this out.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer. Lightly crisp throughout. Long aftertaste as the flavors glue themselves to your tongue.

Drinkability: this beer was flavorful and satisfying. More than one big bottle can be enjoyed in a session.

22oz bomber into a Duvel tulip pours a somewhat hazy orange with a nice frothy off-white head that lasts and leaves nice rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma is a nice blend of caramel malts and oaked vanilla. The taste is a very enjoyable blend of crisp caramel malts against a nice oak profile that leaves an intriguing whiskey-like finish, quite tasty. The beer is somewhat light with a decent carbonation. This is certainly a beer worth trying, especially since Dead Guy Ale was THE gateway beer to craft beer for me and remains one of my regular favorites.
